Some absolutely incredible pictures have appeared online, recording the moment a woman suddenly gave birth in the hallway of a hospital.
The new mum has shared her thoughts on the experience, too. She told Love What Matters:
“I said [to my partner], ‘Travis, this is it. He’s here. You have to catch him. And he looked and he realised I was right. I could feel his head crowning with my hand, and he reached in without hesitation.
“I pushed one time and my body did the rest. And there he was, right there in the emergency room floor.
“She [the midwife who’d rushed to help] gently pulled him up to my chest and I just remember my husband putting his hand on my shoulder and eventually grabbing a towel to slide up under my head because he was worried about me being uncomfortable.
“That man is amazing. He is the best father and the best husband and I don’t know what I would have done without him that day.”
The photos – taken by Tammy Karin of Little Leapling Photography, who went on to share them with LWM – are just stunning.
We love the midwife’s look in this photo! What a dramatic way to make your entrance into the world, eh? ❤️
